My experience is a bit different :-
Original issue with X-Server crash under xenified kernel was patched pretty quickly.
Xen Host on top of Suse 11.2 seems to be alive, however :-


are still opened.

Hi all,

I had only now time to test the settings.

I tried both methods:
limiting to 4Gb via mem=4G
- same result xen dead, memory is limited to 4G, so it is not the same issue as the X server one

second method:

dom0_mem=512M dom0_vcpus_pin dom0_max_vcpus=1

- does not limit the cpus- still 8 cpus used, tested :(

I have opened a bug at opensuse.org


and today they reassigned the bug, so I hope there will be some progress in the near future.

Best regards,
Udo Attila Fischer
